A Retreat father says he is still waiting for cops to come take his statement for a shooting incident that left two people dead and him injured on 18 December 2020.
Wayne Williams, 56, miraculously survived the shooting that left his son Ashley, 39, and his friend Henry Jansen dead in his house.
The incident happened around 9pm in Elsie Manning Street, Cafda.
The family was watching TV when the armed men entered their home and opened fire.
“It was six men, they stood in the street and then the four entered my home. They first shot my dog, then entered the house,” says Wayne.
“They shot my son then my friend and later turned the gun to me. Someone from outside shouted they were in the wrong house and they left.”
Wayne says he does not remember what happened next and he woke up in Groote Schuur Hospital with gunshot wounds on the neck, upper body and arm.
“I was lucky to survive the shooting, but my son and friend were not so lucky.
“The police have not come to take my statement and when my daughter goes to the police station they tell her they will come, but they never do.
“I cannot eat solid foods now due to the shooting and my life changed. I want the police to find the people who shot at us.”
The area is currently experiencing daily shootings between rival gangs, and the community has begged the army to come and patrol the area.
Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said Wayne must lodge a complaint. “Kindly advise the complainant to go to the station to lodge an official complaint and raise his concerns with the station management.
